We have been using Umbertos regularly for over 20 years, both as a couple for anniversaries and with friends and family for birthdays, although would not book for more than 8 as a small intimate place with soft back ground music (usually Andrea Bocelli!) Small entrance at the back, but a warm welcome from the owners Enzo & Gina and... More

Don't bother picking up the menu - you are sure to get something delicious from the specials board. There are a few regular specials - the ravioli is out of this world, as is the skate - and my wife who doesn't eat meat and I who love meat are always very satisfied. Some more negative reviews point out that... More

A family run restaurant that strives to please and does a fantastic job. The food is excellent - an amazing variety and at a reasonable cost all cooked to perfection. Visited several times and both my wife and me have had a truly enjoyable meal with the staff extremely attentive and knowledgeable about the food. A lovely evening every time... More

My friend, who is Italian, recommended this little gem of a restaurant telling me how authentic it was. He was right as the food atmosphere and service were all very good.

The writing was on the wall when to start we were given dry, tasteless bread and olives that were from a jar containing hundreds of other olives on a supermarket shelf. How any self respecting Italian restaurant can serve up olives from a jar in a supermarket is beyond me. It's not difficult to serve up tasty olives. The Turkish... More

Well that was a review to remember, hmmm unfortunately I can honestly say its very incorrect. 1, The olives are purchased from a Italian supplier and do not come in jar you buy off the shelf , very fresh and marinated also. 2, The meat butcher that has supplied the family restaurant would be pretty disgusted by you description of...

Definitely a nice meal, and pricey though it may be- it's a place that can be visited once a while. The seafood is excellent, and cooked to perfection. And the desserts are really nice and full of flavour. Wines are expensive, but this is in keeping with the high level of service and standards here.A true Italian restaurant, with an... More

Don't be put off by the appearance from the High Street. Entrance is to the rear. Good specials board and plenty of pasta dishes on the menu. Good wine selection. Calves liver was excellent. Service attentive and friendly.

Our neighbours had a birthday celebration here and took over the restaurant for their family and friends for the evening. We were served a three course meal from a selected menu of our choice. The portions were generous and the food absolutely divine.

Umberto's offer exactly what you want from a Restaurant, Good Food, knowledgable waiter and again good food. I suppose you could say its old style but if you value the actual food above the style then go for it

Really warm welcome for our family lunch party. Nothing was too much trouble. The food and service was excellent. Great choices for all the courses. I had the butterflied garlic prawns to start followed by skate wings with black butter sauce and capers. Main came with saute potatoes, fine green beans,carrots and broccoli. Looking forward to our next visit.
